Since May 13, pre-Monsoon weather activities in the form of dust storm, rain and thundershowers have commenced over parts of Delhi, Noida, Gurugram, Faridabad and Ghaziabad.
With a short break on May 14, today again many parts of Delhi and NCR have witnessed spell of rain and thundershower activities.
These pre-monsoon weather activities have been attributed to the successive Western Disturbances affecting the hills of North India and their induced cyclonic circulations present over parts of Rajasthan. Moreover, presently a trough is also extending across Delhi.
Therefore, now we expect on and off rain and thundershowers along with dust storm and strong dusty winds to continue over parts of Delhi and NCR till May 17 or 18.
In the wake of these weather activities, weather conditions will remain comfortable and temperatures in most parts of the region will settle below normal. Heat is expected to stay away from the National Capital Region at least for the coming one week or so.
Talking about the pollution levels of Delhi and NCR that were in poor to very poor category are expected to remain under poor to moderate category. But in few places’ rains have washed away pollution to some extent today.
